Shortest Lunch

The Yarra Valley’s unique events and festivals include an array of popular food and wine festivals. The Shortest Lunch is one of the best loved, and is hosted some of the Yarra Valley’s smaller wine producers.

This unique festival invites guests from all parts of the state to enjoy some delicious entrée sized meals within an exquisite natural setting.

Shortest Lunch 2018 Dates, Ticket Price, Yarra Valley Wine, Melbourne

With so many wineries in the Yarra Valley, is is easy for some of the smaller wineries to be overlooked. Determined not to be overshadowed, a group of smaller wineries banded together a number of years ago to create the Yarra Valley Smaller Wineries Association and then went on to create this fun event.

The Shortest Lunch celebrates the Winter Solstice, or the shortest weekend of the year. Come and enjoy the local produce accompanied by a glass of the Yarra Valleys finest wines. This is the perfect way to discover the Yarra Valley’s premium food and wine within a small boutique winery setting.

The event also organises live musical performances throughout the day so that you can enjoy your meal in a truly relaxing environment. Approximately 22 wineries open their cellar doors during this festival so come for a tasting and take a few bottles home with you.

If you plan on staying in the Yarra Valley for the weekend, check out the range of cosy B&B’s, motels or hotels and make the most of the shortest weekend of the year. So if you are looking for accommodation during the festival, click on the link below to find the best accommodation deals.

    • Hi Nahisha,

      The Shortest Lunch is held over a number of wineries, so it is an event that you either need to drive yourself, have someone drive you, or catch a tour.

      You could certainly catch a bus out to Healesville, but would then need to catch a taxi to each of the wineries, which would become very expensive.

      I would recommend taking a tour. Here is a list of participating tour guides taking people on tours:
      Wild Wombat Winery Tours
      Go Get Around Tours
      Epicurean Food & Wine Tours
      Yarra Valley Winery Tours
      Driven Indulgence Yarra Valley Tours
      Samba Kombi Services

      Here are some of the general tour options here. I would give them a call before you book to ensure they are running tours on the day. Otherwise, head to the individual tour sites to make your booking.


      • Hi Nahisha,

        Totally agree with Jess the cheapest way is to jump on a tour bus with other people.

        Happy to discuss, our telephone number should you want any further details is 03 9579 5771.

        Kind Regards
